This is what you get when its been such a slow news week — two blue cat people and their nasty details. In all fairness, I know that the Na’vi sex scene in Avatar has been much talked about on this site all week. So it comes as no surprise that I’m here with an update, direct from the mouth of Zoe Saldana, the human sexiness behind the alluring blue gal Neytiri.
At a press conference this week, Saldana talked about how the Na’vi actually have sex, an act that is hinted at in the movie but never fully explained. Being completists as we are in the press, we just had to ask (by we, I mean the general press — we here at FSR respect the lady’s privacy). She told members of the press that the scene in question (between her character and another Na’vi that will remain nameless to avoid spoilers) was cut from the film to avoid an R rating.
For those of you who’ve read this far and are disappointed that you don’t know yet, here’s what she said (via Inquirer.net) the Na’vi sex is like:
If you sync to your banshee and you’re syncing to a tree, why not sync into a person? I almost feel like you’ll have the most amazing orgasm, I guess. It was a very funny scene to shoot because there were so many technical things that sometimes you have to keep in mind that paying attention to all those might disrupt the fluidity of how a scene is supposed to take place. And because Jim was shooting for a PG-13 rating, we couldn’t move in certain directions. The motion would look a little too past the PG-13 rating standards. So it was really funny for Sam and me. We had a lot of giggles there.
Simple enough. Actually, that’s how I would imagine it would go, if I imagined such things.
